Social Care

Our care services to support Deaf people in leading full and independent lives.

Why does SignHealth provide social care services?

Some Deaf people need additional support in order to live safely or carry out ordinary tasks.  This support is much more effective when delivered by staff who understand Deaf culture and can communicate with the client in their own language.   
  
At SignHealth, we are working towards a future without barriers to good health and wellbeing for Deaf people.

How healthy are Deaf people?

Sick Of It is SignHealth’s ground-breaking report uncovering the health disparity Deaf people face in the UK. Published in 2014, the report has influenced policy and changed practices in the NHS to improve communication and reduce barriers.
